Christmas Morn

Lyrics by Mary Baker Eddy

Source music ‘O Morning Star!’ by George Frederick Root

Arrangement, adaptation and new music by Jennifer Nubel

Blest Christmas morn, though murky clouds

Pursue thy way,

Thy light was born where storm enshrouds

Nor dawn nor day!

Dear Christ, forever here and near,

No cradle song,

No natal hour and mother’s tear,

To thee belong.

Thou God-idea, Life-encrowned,

The Bethlehem babe —

Beloved, replete, by flesh embound —

Was but thy shade!

Thou gentle beam of living Love,

And deathless Life!

Truth infinite, — so far above

All mortal strife,

Or cruel creed, or earth-born taint:

Fill us today

With all thou art — be thou our saint,

Our stay, alway.
